This 'Hurt Me' Meme Is Painfully Honest and Hilarious
You may have noticed a new meme flooding Twitter over the last few days. It's particularly noticeable because it can hit a little too close to home at times.
The "Hurt Me" meme is a conversation between two people in the midst of sex. One asks the other to hurt them, and they respond with something that cuts a little too deep in an unexpected way. In one early version, the second person responds, "Your sister's more successful than you." Then they add, "Not a big fan of the new haircut."

them: you were never that smart you just were good at reading as a child so you were given special attention and it gave you a complex
them: you don’t try at school because youre convinced ur natural intellect will save you but u don’t have it
The meme has proliferated recently, but it actually dates back to early July in a tweet from author Lilah Sturges, according to Know Your Meme. The site says the Sturges tweet was followed weeks later by a couple of tweets from @Skoogeth, which used the same template. Later, it was the tweet above that appears to have turned this into a full-blown meme.
Take a look below for some of the best versions of the "Hurt Me" meme floating around Twitter.

Her: yeah its kinda cute but I just can’t stop thinking about the fact an actual rat is touching everyone’s food, like that breaks tons of health violations & its super gross
Of course, some people called out the meme (using the meme) to acknowledge that this has basically nothing to do with sex or BDSM.
